Golden Gate Bridge General Plan and Elevation Blue Print

Blog - Japanese Erasers

Reprinted from an original blue print facsimile, The General Plan and Elevation of Bridge describes the Golden Gate Bridge in it's completed form. The side view elevation shows from the 746" high towers from mean sea level to the 300 feet depth of the San Francisco bay below center span. The topographical illustration shows the elevation of the land on both north and south sides of the bridge.

The Vicinity Map insert marks the locations of the proposed bridge and connecting highway. The blue print is signed by the bridge's promoter and lead engineer, Joseph Strauss along with the date of April 1931. Strauss, however, was not the designer of the architectural elements that have made the bridge iconic. The print size is 12" X 36" and comes rolled in a plastic sleeve.
